plane crash at s-f-o. the n-t-s-b interviewed all four pilots who were on the plane. 3 of those pilots were actually in the cockpit at the time of crash.. kron 4's charles clifford reports. according to the ntsb, the pilot controlling asiana flight 214 was making his first landing attempt in a boeing 777 at s-f-o. he was controlling the plane from the left hand seat in the cockpit. the training pilot, who was assisting with the landing, was in the right hand seat, there was also a relief first officer in the cockpit jump seat and a fourth pilot seated in the plane's cabin. according to the ntsb, the training pilot says that as the plane descended towards runway 2-8 left, the crew set the planes auto throttle to the required airspeed. >> he set the auto throttle at 137 knots and he assumed that the auto throttles were maintaining speed. but moments later, the pilots realized that the plane was to low and travelling to slow. they attempted to correct the problem by throttling up but by then it was to late. the landing gear and tail of the plane struck the seawall, the aircraft broke apar
. the ntsb has a team on the way. the fbi is also assigned to investigating why this plane went down at around 11:35 this afternoon local time, breaking apart, losing its tail, and filling with smoke, causing two people to lose their lives. eyewitness accounts ver vary ga. some say the plane seemed to cartwheel. others say the pilot seem to overshoot the runway. determining exactly why this plane crashed the way it did could take weeks, possibly months. in the meantime, greta, back here at san francisco international airport and we're in the international terminal, airport operations are starting to resume very slowly on a very limited basis. we have two of the four runways here reopened, but one runway is going to be closed for certainly a significant amount of time. we have a very wide and broad debris field. that is where these ntsb investigators and federal agents with the fbi will be going to collect these pieces. they're going to look for those black boxes. they're going to be talking to people on board the plane, possibly the pilots. we don't know if they're among the very cri

look at the new pictures coming in from the ntsb. closeup shots of the wreckage that is still on the runway in san francisco with investigators saying it is too early to speculate of a cause including the possibility of pilot error but did say that the plane was coming in too low and too slow and the crew at the last second talked about possibly trying to abort their landing and going around and trying again. we asked abc7 news aviation expert about this. >> this is inexplicable behavior, not just getting to that position, low and slow, but being so slow to recognize this is a problem. the ntsb got the information from the black boxes which are in washington, dc. they are providing good details. investigators are in san francisco saying it could take up to a year to determine the cause of the crash. they have a lot of work to do. >> while the ntsb determines the cause of the wrack, asiana airlines is quick to defend the pilot landing the boeing 777. the president of the airlines said and i quote, "all responsibility lies in the trainer co-pilot, not the train ee pilot." he add
. there is another component to the work they do. the ntsb is the -- required by the aviation of 1996 and the foreign air carrier foreign support act of 1997 to provide and coordinate -- to coordinate the assistance for family members of victims and also sr. sur -- for survivors and their families post-crash. it requires this act, requires domestic and foreign air carriers for scheduled passenger service to have plans in place to meet the needs of aviation accident victims and their family members. it requires the ntsb to help coordinate with the air carrier and local and state authorities and those authorities will be individuals like the coroner's office to insure that the needs for services and information regarding the accident is being provided to victims and their families. the victim's families and survivors at the accident. our team is working with the american red cross with the state department. we have several nationalities involved. transportation services. we want to make sure they have a place to go, a safe place to go to recover, to grieve and to have is support from people who care ab
're hearing more about the deadly crash in san francisco. good afternoon. i'm tori campbell. today, ntsb investigators hope to finish interviewing all four of the pilots from asiana flight 214. with continuing coverage on the crash, alex savidge is live with more. >> reporter: right now federal investigators are questioning the pilot at the controls of that boeing triple 7 on saturday trying to get a sense of exactly what he was doing in those final moments. that interview should be completed later today. the interviews with all four of those crew members should offer insight into why this plane was flying far too low to make a safe landing. the ntsb will hold a news conference to update the investigation. this as investigators here at the crash site continue to document the plane's wreckage. the first time the crew realized there was trouble, it was seven minutes before impact. much too late. ntsb investigators are questioning the pilots why they didn't react sooner. >> they worked together as a crew. we want to understand how that responsibility was broken down, how they were communica
the runway and off to the side of the runway. those flight attendants survived. >> ntsb investigators completed preliminary interviews of the three pilots who was in the crash. a fourth pilot was not on the flight deck at the time but is still being interviewed. the instructor pilot told investigators the plane was too high when they passed 4,000 feet. at 500 feet he realize they were too low and instructed the pilot to pull back. about 200 feet he noticed the a to throttles were not maintaining speed and attempted a go around. by then it was too late to recover. on impact, the aircraft ballooned. it went into a 360-degree spin. >> of the individuals in the cockpit, the first officer was the one that received medical treatment. he was hospitalized and released, had a cracked rip. neither of the other two pilots that were in the cockpit were admitted to the hospital. >> while probable cause of the crash won't be determined until the full investigation is completed, the head of the ntsb called out the pilots for an apparent break down of their air speed function. >> the crew is required
donald >>> as investigators sift through the rubble at sfo, the ntsb gives us the closest look yet at what's left of the charred plane. good afternoon, i'm michelle griego. frank mallicoat is on assignment. >>> we have new details in the asiana plane crash investigation that killed two people on saturday. the ntsb is still interviewing the pilots who were never drug tested after the crash. kpix 5's anne makovec with the concerns that also being raised about the plane's mechanics. >> reporter: yeah, a lot of concerns this afternoon. but the ntsb is warning us all to not jump to conclusions. i know that's easier said than done. they are still out there at the wreckage. you can see i'm in burlingame now. that's the view of the wreckage still on the runway right now. now, the ntsb still gathering the facts at this point. they are going to put it together and see what it tells us. >> our investigators, the flight data recorder is invaluable and we got great cooperation from the pilot in the interviews yesterday and the day before. >> reporter: was it pilot error, mechanical failure or both? much of th
to assist the n.t.s.b.. we've received word that in fact n.t.s.b. is on its way. they will be conducting a thorough investigation. >> heather: you see the shot there. the plane the front area of the plane there in front of the plane, opposite of the emergency khuitd. that would appear to be -- emergency chute and that ureport video you could see the plane initially seemed to begin in that area in front 69 plane. >> gregg: joining us on the television, steven wallace former director of accident investigations for the faa. thank you for taking the time. it appears where the water meets the jetty there is debris in the water and we can put a picture of the jetty it sustained damage. there it is. i don't know if you are tuned to fox news. there you see the debris field that begins in the water. you see damage to the part of the jettie and very edge where planes are not supposed to touch you see the debris field and it extends all the way down the runway. what does that tell you? >> and previous caller that was quite knowledgeable, avoiding speculating but i will point out this airplane has a
: the ntsb says all four pilots are being cooperative. however a key part of most crash investigations has been lost. >> none of the crew members on asiana flight 214 were tested for drugs and alcohol postcrash. >> reporter: drug and alcohol testing is standard with u.s. pilots involved in a crash but not necessarily for foreign crews. at the crash scene, investigators remove luggage and other personal items today and checked the controls in the cockpit. the ntsb says the planes landing gear hit first then the tail. the 777 was flying too slow on approach but in interviews the crew said a device called an auto throttle meant to maintain flying speed was in the on position. but it's not clear if it was being used properly. but the ntsb says that such a device is not a substitute for pilots making landing observations in the cockpit. >> let me be very clear, the crew is required to maintain a safe aircraft. that means they need to monitor. >> reporter: of the four member pilot crew. three of them were in the cockpit. a fourth was in the cabin. the ntsb says that was normal. at 6:00 we'll hav
behind me. we are stuck in time. they are going to keep it there right now. this is the ntsb says their first chance to get a look at what is happening by the light of day. they arrived here and got to the plane at about midnight. they combed through that and recovered the black boxes, sent them with with an escort. probably within the next 24 hours we could get our first look at what those black boxes hold, if any kind of information. preliminary reports we could get within the next 24 hours. we have six people still in critical condition in hospitals here in the bay area. among those one child. we are also told that two people in this crash are likely facing paralysis. >> with regard to the investigation yesterday we did see police officers kind of do a sweep of the area. i know there have been some concerns that some of the forensic evidence that they might be looking for today, overnight it may have because of the conditions out there that it could have corroded in some ways. what are they looking for today there on the ground? >> reporter: they need to see -- they need to kee
of the ntsb. pete, are you there? >> i am. >> what's going to be the first order of business when that ntsb team arrives in san francisco? >> well, they'll try to bring order to what looks like a pretty chaotic scene. they'll certainly allow the first responders to do their job. and once the site has been secured, and the first respo responders are their, have completed their job, they will go directly into the wreckage to try to get the flight data recorder and the voice recorder. those are clearly the two most important pieces of equipment that they need to get for an accident like this. >> what would those tell us? >> on a plane like the 777, the data recorder has hundreds of pieces of information. it will tell you precisely what was going on. oftentimes, multiple hits per second. so they will know what this may not was doing. on the voice recorder, it will tell you how the crew was reacting. were they following procedures? were they cooperating with each other? identifying the correct points, identifying what they were supposed to, identifying the check list that's they had completed. >
will be on the scene conducting with the n.t.s.b. a thorough investigation. >> heather: he seemed to think that was not the case from looking, from his perspective at the pictures that we are looking at. the distance between the plane itself where it came to rest and the tail end as they zoomed out and saw the distance between the two. he seemed to think, according to his expert analysis, or initial analysis that the tail came off after the crash. >> gregg: here you see a hole in the back of plane. the tail is in three pieces in a different section of the runway. there is a gaping hole on the back end. it's unclear whether passengers could have gotten out or obstructed in some form. we do have a report that one of the slides, the blow up inflatable slides did activate. they saw people jumping down that slide. obviously, fire retardant was used all over the plane to put out the flames. >> we also have another report from redwood city, the fire department according to ktvu there were passengers on board who were being treated with burn injuries. that would be understandable as you look at th
of the runway at the early stage that it did for many weeks, if not months, until the ntsb produces its first interim and then final report. but clearly what we can now see, of course, is the crownolohrono events as stated by eyewitnesss. you've got to go back quite some time before you see, of course, previous incidents in the united states. the continental airline incident which happened in 2009 and 49 people died in that incident. but you're talking about major passenger jets, large scale, 200, 300-seat passenger jets, you really are going back through until town until you actually see -- you go back to november of 2001 where you have the american airlines incident where 260 people died in that. so, the size of this sort of aircraft having a fatality or emergencies of this manner is very rare. and that's why the investigators will want to know exactly what was happening on that aircraft at the moment of touchdown. and also one other thing, don, they'll want to know, because it's not just enough to know why or how this crash happened. they'll want to know about the evacuation procedures --
in saturday's crash. she is also just 16 years old. >> this investigation is unfolding quickly. the ntsb is releasing new information at a swift pace. this is newly-released video by the ntsb of the crash scene. here's key developments. two flight attendants were ejected from the plane. deborah hersman said the plane landing gear struck the bay first. the commanding pilot was serving as an instructor for the first time. >> we have live team coverage for you this evening. jean elle and more on that investigation, including what the pilots didn't realize what was happening in the moments before flight 214 crashed. >> we begin with terry mcsweeney and the emerging question over seat belts. did the first class passengers get better protection? >> reporter: 12 of the victims of the asiana aircraft disaster are still here at san francisco general. five are in critical condition. and now, an attorney from burlingame is asking the question, had the people in economy class had the same restraints as those in first class, might there be fewer people here? and might the injuries be less severe? pre
214. ntsb has learned valuable information about the crash from interviewing the black box and pilots. they say the landing speed was too slow and 36 miles per hour less than the target speed. also the pilot knew something was wrong and tried to aboard the landing and they -- abort the landing and they clipped the sea wall to fso. less than 20 minutes ago we listened to the chairwoman as they spoke about the scope in length about the investigation. live with a wrap up of the interview and claudine, what did she tell you. >> it will take awhile to get wrapped up and it will take anywhere from a week to two weeks and it looks closer to two weeks, we have a huge debris field and there are more that need to be conducted and vex is are -- investigators are getting ready and at this point, sleep, this is not what they are getting enough of and let's talk about what they know so far. all three pilots were in the cockpit and we talked about the instructor pilot and the number of hours they had. the instructor said they had been very cooperative and they have to put it all together and they ha
. the ntsb said people didn't begin evacuating until 90 second says later when a fire erupted. the pilot checked with the tower at the airport. we have 911 calls made from people who saw the accident and people who had just gotten off the plane. charles clifford reports. >> reporter: the california highway patrol got calls moments after the crash. >> i am reporting an airplane crash at sfo. >> reporter: they were getting calls from people on the plane. >> hello california highway patrol. >> we just got in a plane crash at san francisco international airport. >> reporter: they received frantic calls from people who were ejected. >> we just got in a plane crash and there are a bunch of people who need help. there is a woman out here on the street on the runway who is pretty much burned severely on the headand we don't know what to do. no ambulance is on site. cfire trucks but no ambulance. >> okay. hold on. >> reporter: charles clifford, kron4news. >>> they are opening site investigation but there are questions not answered. kron4's dan kerman brings us the latest. >> reporter: they talk a
the cause of the crash and does not expect to issue a report for months. >> the ntsb continues the investigation into the crash, survivors were able to return to the scene just four days after the terrifying accident. this is video with our helicopter partnership with abc seven news. and you can see charter buses arriving at the scene and the survivors out on the tarmac observing the wreckage. it is unclear what they were doing although they were accompanied by ntsb agents. >> will tran is live in berlin game right now with a direct view of the activity there of the runway. >> they have big cranes out there, they are still picking up the debris. it could be some time before the runway as open and even though the ntsb has turned control of the runway back over to ask of all. they're not giving a timetable on when it may not reopen for the flying public. we got a chance to talk to the ntsb chairman deborah hersmann. she thinks there was enough time for him to get his vision back and correct whatever he needed to do inland the airport safely and a perfect world. once the airplane
. we appreciate it. ntsb go team as it is described investigators who examine float crashes like this is on the way from washington to san francisco. they are holding a new's conference on the crash and this is what what debbie hersh authority man had to say about the investigation. >> the triple seven has been around a while and will be looking at everything when we get there. we have not determined what the focus of the investigation is yet. we have to get on scene to collect the factual information and do the documentation and draw on the experts. as we have been telling you, investigators will have to try to piece together what went wrong. of course, weather is always of interest and for a closer look at the time of the landing. meteorologist janice is in the weather center. we are told that the weather was clear and there were light winds at the time of this. >> yes, and all of the investigating that i have done over the last several hours, proves that. we do have low- lying clouds on the coast. you can so the typogra ph y. and i looked for any marine layer or cloud cover th
? the ntsb conducts very thorough investigations. we will not reach a determination of probable cause in the first few days on an accident scene. we want to gather all the perishable information and facts early in the investigation. we have just been here for a few hours. not even a full day yet. we have preliminary information but we have a lot more work to do. we need to interview the crews. we need to interview the first responders. we need to validate the raw data on the flight data recorder as well as on air traffic tapes so we'll be working to do that. >> yes. los angeles. can you tell us and characterize again at what point did something seem to go wrong, from the data recorder first or did it seem to go from the voice recorder? where did sort of a discrepancy enter first? >> the question is, from the information that we have on the flight data recorder and the cockpit voice recorder, where did things begin to go wrong? and which one occurred first? what we need to do is corroborate the information that we have on both the flight data recorder and the cockpit voice recorder to
would go down. here's what the ntsb said last night. >> a call from one of the crew members to increase speed was made approximately 7 seconds prior to impact. the sound of the stick shaker occurs approximately 4 seconds prior to impact. a call to initiate a go around occurred 1.5 seconds before impact. >> some people 1r06ed in the crash were released. there are still a lot of people in serious condition, spinal fractures internal injuries as well. the investigation of course continuing as the ntsb investigators are interviewing those people and other witnesses talking to the crew. you mentioned the pilot. the pilot had 10,000 hours of flying experience landing here before on that same runway but in a different jet. it was the first time landing a 777 here and he had only 43 hours in a 777. is that the reason why this plane came down? was it pilot error or lack of time in the plane? that is something we are lacking closely at. mauk bee both pilot error as well as mechanical error. that's what the ntsb is looking at. ainsley and heather. >> his primary experience being with a 747. adam h
, you spoke with the chairman of ntsb a little while ago? >> reporter: that's right, dave, the head of the ntsb told me earlier this morning they will likely sit down and interview the pilots later on today and that will be an important interview. they are trying to get a sense of what went wrong in flight 214. the wreckage remains here at fso. this was just a training flight and saturday was the first time he had flown that particular type of plane into fso. it was a boeing 777 and of course he came up short slamming the tail into the runway. these are photos released by the ntsb. oral the pilot is experienced and has over 98 hours of flying time but only logged 43 hours behind the controls of a boeing 777. he is still in the process of getting his license for the triple 777. >> well we know that the airline has released information about the crew's experience and we will be looking at the crew's experience overall and their total experience and also their experience in this aircraft and how they worked together and we are looking at crew resource management and human factor's issu
for the ntsb, we're getting a better idea of what the scene was like moments after the crash. nbc bay area's christie smith is here with more reaction from the first responders. we will hear from her at the news conference. we will hear from her in just a moment. right now we want to turn things over to our aviation expert from our investigative unit, steven stock. >> steven, like us you've been listening to us from the first responders. what are your immediate takeaways as you listen to what they have to say? >> john, we use the word heroic in the media a lot but i don't think that's overselling it in this case. some of the things that immediately struck me was how selfless these first responders were, the fact that some of them ran up the exit chute. now, that's hard to do. sometimes these are -- this is literally eight to ten to 12 feet just to get into the airplane. this is an airplane that is smoking and catching on fire but they ran up that. that jim cunningham went in the airplane, the fuselage, without any protective gear at all. these are selfless, heroic acts and it was quite imp
. >> and also, the ntsb is expected to release more information about that fso. i want to take you there live and you can see the wreckage of asiana airlines flight 214, and this is alive picture -- a live picture. they just told -- the head of the ntsb said they interviewed two pilots and would interview the two others today. according to the findings, engines were working leading up to saturday's crash but they are still trying to figure out why one emergency slide malfunctioned. >> the slides deployed inside the aircraft and we need to understand why that happened. >> reporter: investigators watched surveillance video to see if one teen survived the cash but was hit and killed by an emergency vehicle on the tarmac. investigators say the video is not clear and could take more to find out about what happened. >>> some are being delayed it hours 30 minutes and it is not clear if it is connected to the asiana airlines crash investigation or because of the weather or both. we are also seeing flight cancellations and at least 100 flights were canceled yesterday. san jose reports four planes boun
that the plane was clearly coming in too low, too slow. yesterday we learned from ntsb about too slow, today, too low. instructer pilot noticed 500 feet from lights on the runway they were not in the best position or slope to come in for a safe landing at 200 feet, the position worsen bud we know it was too late to recover. ntsb tells us there the pilot was still learning but had experience on 737s, 747s and a 320s about halfway through his required training on 777. his recent command was captain of a a 320. he was flying at the time, the instructor pilot seated next to him was in command. >> total flight time is 13,000 hours. estimated about 3,000 hours in the triple 7. his total pilot in command time was 10,000 hours. he had been in the korean air force 10 years. >> the pilot told ntsb they armed auto throttles but it's not clear if throttles were engaged. >> they'd set speed at 137 knots. and assumed throttles were maintaining speed. >> saying if they were maintaining speed it's the crew's job to monitor it. >> one of the very critical things that needs to be monitored on an approach to landin
and we are told it first was sitting at the gate last night. >>> flight 214, the ntsb said they have learned valuable information about the crash. from analyzing the black boxes sifting through the wreckage and interviewing the pilots, they say the landing was too slow. 36 miles per hour less than the target speed. the pilots knew something was wrong and a boarded -- aborted the landing. the aircraft stalled and they clipped the sea wall to fso. investigaters are looking closer at the pilot's training and their actions seconds before the crash. claudine wong joins us with the investigation into the final moments leading up to the impact, good morning, claudine. >> reporter: we are at the holiday inn and already inside and this is where ntsb investigators are as they are getting ready for the day they plan to be back out at that runway at daylight to try and piece together what happened. we get a lot of information the last couple of days as they have done interviews and tried to reconstruct moments before they hit the runway at fso, we have learned the force of the crash was so hard
terrorism as a cause in all of this. the ntsb teams are on the way. they'll be combing through a very wide debris field when they arrive there at runway 28l. piece es of this plane's tail ae strewn everywhere, and they will also be looking into reports that we are trying to confirm here tonight about some special lights that reportedly were not working on this specific runway yesterday. these are lights that help direct the pilot on approach. we heard reports that yesterday these particular lights were not working, so investigators will be looking into that. of course, witnesses have described seeing the plane not looking good at all as it tried to land version wobbly and tilted, and the landing gear was down. as far as we've been told, the pilot did not make any kind of distress call. these investigators, of course, will be looking for those flight data recorders and they'll be talking to crew members. we understand 16 crew members on board this flight. we know all, if not most of them, may have survived. again, just two dead here in this incident, and many say it's a miracle that more pe
. as the ntsb combs over the crash site new information is emerging about how one of the 16-year-old chinese students may have been killed in the crash of asiana flight. >> they have documented the locations of rest of the two fatalities. they're going to be working now to document the seating positions of those who were injured. >> reporter: nbc bay area has learned that the san mateo county corner's office got a call from the san francisco fire department. apparently members of the first response team were concerned that they may have played a role in the death of the girl whose body was found near the fuse see laj. published reports quoted the san francisco fire chief as saying that girl's injuries are consistent with being run over by a fire truck or other emergency vehicle. the ntsb was not asked specific questions about her death but did say part of their investigation will focus on how emergency officials responded to the crash. >> the airport rescue and firefighting operations deployed 23 responders and 9 vehicles after the crash. >> reporter: the two girls who died were from china.
. the chief says her department will help. >> we are working closely with the ntsb conducting their investigation on all aspects but particularly on this aspect. >> the two girls were sitting in the back of the plane, one found near the broken tail and the other was down the runway next to the main body section. authorities are not saying which victim may have been hit. >> we are looking at the terrifying moments after the plane crashed because of video that captured the evacuation. the images are taken by an 18-year-old who heard a "thud" from the plane and pulled out the camera and caught these images of passengers going down the emergency slides. >> i went outside and saw the big cloud of dirt and i started recording immediately. she continued to record as the cabin caught fire. you can see there is a thick black cloud of smoke. passengers can be seen running away from the aircraft while crews sprayed the fuselage. >> most of the 182 hurt in the crash have been released from the hospitals. doctor say they are seeing a pattern of spinal injuries. the chief neurosurgeon says
. >> you can find the link under the hot topics of the web site. >>> the ntsb offered new information obtained from flight 2nd interviews about a 90 2nd delay on the final approach to sfo. >> in the for a moments before the crash, the pilot behind the stick told ntsb investigators he saw something, a bright light at around 500 feet. >> we need to understand what that is, identify if there are any sources of light. >> ntsb chair woman says the pilot described the light as a temporary issue, the focus of the investigation is on why the plane was flying too low and too slow on approach. >> the pilots say an auto throttle did not maintain a safe speed. it's the pilot's job to fly the plane, much like cruise control on the car. >> if the cruise control allows the speed to increase to 65, 70, 75, the driver needs to intervened. >> six flight crew remain hospital lies. >> and the flight crew ordered the flight attendants to not issue an evacuation. >> one of the flight attendants noticed a fire burning from the right side engine. a flight attendant ordered the evacuation but the crew stayed

? >> that is right. here is the wreckage. it is behind me. this is the closest we have been. the ntsb has already pulled the pieces that it needs for the investigation. this is what is left. it is now out the way. but now they have to figure out what to do with it. the salvage operation turned into an emergency situation overnight when smoke started spewing from the airplane wreckage. abc7 news captured this exclusive video as crews were cutting the fuselage in half to move it. >> when we do this, it is cutting through metal and it create as lot of friction and a lot of heat. we had reports of smoke but in fire and we did have a fire crew standing by during the entire process. they were able to quickly put out that smoke. >> moments before, we saw them lit the back part of the aircraft with a sling and debris come spilling out. this and the smoke just illustrate what officials expected: the unexpected. >> we didn't know what to expect, if we could move it or how the wreckage would react to being lifted or if it would buckle. there are a lot of things we didn't know and a lot of things that could
airliner crash. as we mentioned, the ntsb is on the scene. their south korean counterparts are on the way. matt keller joins us live from sfo with the latest from a briefing, matt, that was held just a short time ago? >> yeah. actually it was a one-on-one interview with the ntsb chairman. she was here at sfo. they have gun their investigation. now she did confirm to me that the flight data recorder and the cockpit voice recorder have been recovered here at the crash site. they are both on a red eye flight right now on their way to washington, d.c., with a federal escort. here are some pictures taken by the ntsb overnight of them doing their first site inspection of the plane. they are getting a closer look at the wreckage. the chairman just told me investigations like this usually take about a week. at least on the scene. today they are focused on the plane and the debris left behind. >> we are working right now with san francisco airport to make sure that they can get back operational, that there's other runways that they can utilize those. we will have to take a look at this aircraft at
, as it is planned. as of right now, the ntsb will give us a few details. they have a long ways to go. there is a massive debris field. the plane came down, bounced a couple of times. they have to find out why that happened. they do believe that the landing gear hit the end of the jetty first, where the water ends and the runway begins. but they were looking at the fuselage last night. they went back to wait for the sun to come up. now they are going full bore in the investigation. we need to mention, besides the washington, d.c. team that got here late in the evening, early this morning, there was am thatd right away, was here and a short time after the crash, they were unable to secure the site and find the two black boxes and get them back to washington, d.c. we are told that that will help the ntsb really formulate this entire investigation. they will be able to gather stuff on the ground and get the information from the cockpit to let them begin to understand what happened here and whether this was human error, mechanical problems or it was a mixture of both, which is also a poss
to ntsb for their investigation. >> chief, a little bit has been made of the navigation system at sfo. tell me if this is out of your purview, but the system that helps pilots make save decents. it was turned off at the time. do you think in light of what happened there will be an overall review both from the standpoint of the operation of the airport and what you guys do? >> i definitely think there will be a comprehensive investigation into the events that happened yesterday. certainly i'm not an aeronautics expert. but without warning, and typically oftentimes we will get an alert, too, that means a plane is in distress, perhaps landing gear issues where we can align ourselves on the runway. yesterday we didn't have that benefit. the plane had landed, shoots deployed and fire had begun before we responded. we got there within three minutes and as you were reporting the foam and water while passengers were coming down the shoot. we also sent our members into the plane to assist those who were unable to get down the shoots on their own. the crew, i might mention, also of the airlines
people onboard that plane. i want you to listen to what the ntsb boss said they learned from the cockpit recordings. >> a call from one of the crew members to increase speed was made approximately seven seconds prior to impact. during the approach, the data indicate that the throttles were at idle and air speed was slowed below the target air speed. >> the number from the people onboard, 182 rushed to the hospital around the city. rushed to hospitals around the city. six are in critical condition. two passengers who were on the plane died, but amazingly more than 100 people walked away without a scratch. i want you to see and hear the video that fred hayes shot yesterday. he has no idea he is about to witness a disaster. watch and listen. >> look at him. yeah, he does. look at that one. look how is nose is up in the air. oh, my god. oh, it's an accident. >> you're filming it, too. oh, no! >> oh, my god! >> oh, my god. you're filming it. >> what happened? >> oh, my god! oh, my god! oh, my god. >> you filmed the whole thing. >> oh, lord have mercy. oh, my god. >> lord have mercy is right.
